What's Fresh

What’s Fresh, May 23

4th Saturday of the month will welcome our rotating vendor Empa Mundo, World of Empanadas. Only fresh ingredients are used in Raul and Miming Gordon’s empanadas, with recipes all developed by Raul.

Summer produce is beginning to show up now, while late spring greens and root vegetables still abound. Great time of year! Look for limited quantities of peaches but more and more field-grown yellow, patty pan and zucchini squash, green beans, and potatoes. Tart, little green plums are fun to try, green tomatoes are fun to fry 🙂

With this year’s extended, late spring find arugula, basil, beets, bok choy, cabbage, carrots, purple cauliflower,  Swiss chard, cilantro, collards, cucumbers, dandelion greens, fennel, garlic chives, garlic, herbs, kale, leeks, lettuces, mint, mizuna, onions, parsnips, pecans, red and white potatoes, radishes, salad mixes, shallots, snap peas, sorrel, spinach, sunflower sprouts, turnips, watercress, and more.  Also find greenhouse raised red tomatoes and strawberries.

Herb, vegetable, strawberry plants, fig trees, and colorful bedding plants plus sunflower bouquets are also available.

Look for pastured beef, pork, and chicken raised on a natural diet. Several vendors bring eggs from free range chickens. Captain George brings his Gulf seafood.

Dairy products include a selection of gently pasteurized goat milk, drinkable goat milk yogurt, pimento cheese, goat and cow’s milk artisan cheeses, and butter.

Also find real, fermented sauerkraut, award-winning pies, soup and dessert mixes, whole grains including rice mixes and oatmeal, lemonade, popsicles, breads and croissants, gluten free breads, pasta, snacks,  cookies, honey, coffee, tamales, salsa and chips, doggie biscuits, olive oil, vinegar,  seasonings, small batch prepared foods, soaps and lotions.

Our farmers use various growing methods. To clarify, our website notes their growing methods on each farmer’s description page. Look for Certified Organic, Sustainably Grown, or Conventional growing methods noted at the end of their descriptions.

We are a local, seasonal farmers market, meaning that our farmers bring only what is
ripening in  their fields this week and some produce has a short growing season.
Eating with the seasons takes education, awareness and patience!
